About REBORN ANIMAL REFUGE OF COLORADO INC

Location:

E 112th Ave, Strasburg, CO 80136, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to rescue and provide life-long care for captive animals who have suffered from abuse, neglect, abandonment, exploitation, or been kept illegally; and to educate the public on the captive wildlife crisis and the value of animals and their lives.

Description

Reborn Animal Refuge of Colorado is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit wild animal refuge in Strasburg, CO sitting on 40 acres of land. Currently 10 of those acres are being utilized and are fenced in.

Reborn currently has 9 Hybrid Wolves, 4 Steers, 3 Goats, 1 African Sheep, 2 Mini-Ponies and 1 Barn cat that have been rescued from various situations.
Our long term goal is to also rescue wild animals that are native to Colorado and are captive born and raised, such as bears, wolves, coyotes, bobcats, mountain lions, and foxes.

As a true sanctuary we will not breed, sell, exhibit or exploit animals. We are committed to educating the public about the captive animal crisis.
We treat each animal with respect, love and kindness.

As an individual 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we rely solely on generous people who believe in our mission.
